Almost everyone suffers from lower back pain at some point in their lives — about 31 million Americans experience this at any given time. Research also shows that low back pain is the second most common reason for doctor office visits. Low back pain can seriously alter the ability for people to work, enjoy time with family and friends, and experience an active lifestyle. Low back pain has increased in prevalence as our lifestyles have become more sedentary, especially in children. If this sounds all too familiar, chiropractic care may be able to help you.
Your lower back is engineered to provide strength and support to your upper body. Your everyday tasks can do some serious wear and tear on your back. Lower back pain can be caused by any number of causes, such as the way you sit, how often you sit, repetitive motions, posture, and countless others. The severity of your back pain can vary as well based on your activities. No matter what your pain level — dull, achy, burning, or spasming — routine chiropractic adjustment can treat your low back pain without prescription and over the counter medicine.
Chiropractic care is a non-invasive and non-addictive alternative to traditional pain management. About 27 million Americans are treated by a doctor of chiropractic each year to treat a variety of issues — including low back pain — as well as routine maintenance. Chiropractic care is often used for lower back pain treatment and is a combination of spinal manipulation as well as a holistic, whole-body approach to wellness and nutrition. Spinal manipulation uses the doctor’s hands or a small device to increase joint mobility in a targeted area, which in turn reduces muscle tightness, relieves swelling, or decreases nerve irritation.
Adding chiropractic care to your wellness routine can help:
- Reduce pain and discomfort
- Decrease inflammation
- Improve range of motion
- Improve flexibility
- Increase muscle tone and strength
